'OME years ago, in the interchange 
of civihtles and comiiHmcnts touch- 
ing rare manuscripts, I had an 
opportunity of asking M. Girard 
dc Rialle, the learned Director of 
the Archives des Affaires Etran- 
gercs, Paris, to let me sec the most precious document in 
his keeping. Replying that the most precious object in 
the Archives was not readily accessible to his assistants, 
he left mc, returning in a few minutes with a small folio 
volume, which on opening I found to my delight and 
surprise to be Christopher Columbus's own Book of 
Patents, Privileges and Concessions granted to him by 
Eerdinand and Isabella, a manuscript of exquisite beauty 
and in an almost perfect state of preservation. 

Anticipating the great pleasure stutlents would feel 
in perusing the text of the su[)erior of the two existing 
transcripts of the Codex in the \ery form in which 
Columbus took so much pains to preserve it, I conceived, 
after many months' careful consideration, the plan of making 
the present companion volume to my series of Eacsimiles 
of Manuscripts in luiropean Archives relating to America. 
That plan involvetl the separate steps of photographic 
reproduction, transliteration and translation, with the 
addition of some autograph letters of Columbus, and an 
Historical Introduction which should bring Columbian 
bibliographical and historical information concerning this 
cartulary down to the present time. 

My application to the Erench Government for per- 
mission to photograph the whole volume was transmitted 
through Mr. Whitelaw Reid, the Am(;rican Minister, with 

V A3 


a cordial letter of commendation, and was supported by 
Mr. Henry Vignaud, the Secretary of Legation, himself a 
zealous and enlightened antiquary. It was known that I 
had had considerable experience in making photographic 
facsimiles of documents, and the Director of the Archives 
became much interested in my project. Both he and 
M. Ribot, the then Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, 
heartily recommended it to the Commission des Archives 
Diplomatiqucs, a board of control consisting of a Presi- 
dent, three Vice-Presidents, a Secretary, and about twenty- 
five members. In tlue time my rccjuest was granted on 
the general grounds that it was prudent to let the Codex 
be reproduced in facsimile by some absolutely permanent 
process, and that the multiplication and distribution of 
copies would tend to the better preser\'ation of this 
original text, which in certain respects differs from that 
of the Genoa Codex. 

I was permitted to erect a studio In the garden of 
the Foreign Oftice for the purpose of making my photo- 
graphs, and every facility, under most liberal limitations, 
was cxtentlcd to me and to the operators by the officials 
and attendants of the Archival Department. 

For each separate part of my j)lan I have Ijecn so 
fortunate as to secure the cordial assistance and co-opera- 
tion of the best exjierts, while my own experience in 
printing was of material use to me in the arrangement of 
type and in interleaving the manuscript so that all facing 
pages, whate\er their (luantity of matter (cf pp. 106 and 
166), should have the corresponding amount of trans- 
literation and translation. 

In the transliteration the contractions have been ex- 
panded and a few stt)ps have been introduced, but these, 
with the usual difference in the use of capital letters, are 
the only alterations that have been made. \Vhere\er it 
has been found necessary to emend the text, the reading 
suggested is added in a bracket. Many Latin phrases in 
the Bull of Alexander vi. are faulty in spelling, and it has 
been thought better not to oxerload the transliteration with 
bracketed words, but to give at the foot of each of these 
six pages a cojjy of the text from the Bullarium. I do not

literation with 
each of these 
urn. I do not 

know whether the Bull in the other codices, if made by 
other scribes, was more or less accurate than this. 

In the translation every effort has been made to give 
to each wr 1 its due force, and, by adopting a strictly literal 
renderiuf o avoid warping the sense. The following 
illustrati' •;.. points may be specially mentioned. 

(i.) " Frivilegio rodado" (pp. 25, 57): this is not, 
Mr. Barwick thinks, to be found in any Spanish-English 
dictionary, which no doubt accounts for its previous trans- 
lation as " a privilege done up in a roll " ; it is here 
rendered " a privilege with the circle of signatures," and 
the circle is really a round robin having the King's 
signature in the centre. The word " rodado" (//V. 
"wheeled") admirably expresses the appearance which 
such a circle presents. 

(ii.) In pp. 74, 85, etc., several measures of capacity 
are mentioned ; they are probably Castilian, but as such 
measures varied very considerably, according to the province 
in which they were used, it has been thought advisable to 
retain them in the translation, and to mention here that 
the equivalents of the Casti'ian or standard measures at 
that time were approximately : Azumbre = 3 quarts ; 
Fanega = ij bushels; Cahiz = 12 fanegas = 18 bushels. 

(iii.) A passage in the Letter of Columbus to the 
Nurse (p. 246), " Sy yo robara las Yndias o tierra que 
jaz fase ellas, de que agora es la fabla, del altar de Sant 
Pedro, y las diera alos moros," has hitherto been regarded 
as obscure. But it has apj)arently escaped notice that 
"jaz " is simply an old form of " yaz " ( = yace), while there 
can be no doubt that, as already suggested by Mr. Major, 
" fase " = fasia (= hacia). With this r'^iading the passage 
makes both good Spanish and good sense, and its 
punctuation becomes intelligible. 

The ink used in the manuscript is generally well 
preserved, but where the writing is very heavy in the 
initial letters and opening words of some of tne docu- 
ments, and occasionally in the closer writing and folia- 
tion, it is partly perished, leaving a bronzed or metallic 
appearance. Instances in which this has occurred are 
shown in the broken lines in the facsimile, see pages 107, 


In other plr 


III, 112, 148, 152, 155, etc. in other places mere 
arc evidences of the use of a drying powder, which 
still adheres to the ink. 

The rubrications or lines and flourishes at the foot of 
every page to the end of the Privileges (p. 2 12) are not 
mere meaningless ornaments, but the rubricas, or personal 
and peculiar flourishes of the scriveners or notaries, giving 
to every page thus marked the utmost validity. It will be 
noticed that neither these rubricas nor any authenticating 
certificates appear on the subsequent documents. 

To the manuscript volume I have ventured to add 
three autograph letters of Columbus, and the Decree of 
the Republic of Genoa in 1670 heretofore un{)ublished, 
all relating tothe transmission of the precious documents to 
Genoa and their future preservation. It seems to me that 
there is no ambiguity in these letters. I (juote for ready

I\Iy own belief is that the notaries put the vellums 
containing the Patents and Privileges together in the usual 
form, making them into one "book," and then they put the 
other letters and writings together to form another " book," 
and that these two books, in notarial style, but unbound, 
were placed in the ixig for transmission to Genoa. 

Perhaps a careful description of the present appear- 
ance of the Paris Code.x will i)e my best argument as to 
the absence of any anticjue binding, and at the same time 
these particulars may have other interest. The volume,

The volume, 
I'ith the arms 

of the Second Republic, consists of thirty eight skins of 
vellum carefully folded into seventy-six numbered leaves. 
The first leaf is blank, the second is the notarial title-page 
(p. 5), the third is the Coat of Arms (p. 7), the fourth to 
the fifty-third leaves (pp. 10 to 209) comprise the manu- 
script with the foliation i to l. There is no original 
foliation li and lii, and the Book of Patents, Privileges, 
etc., ends on the back of folio liii, i.e. on the fifty-fourth 
leaf (p. 213). Leaves fifty-five to sixty-three are blank, 
with the exception of their foliation lihi to lxii. The 
sixty-fourth leaf is folio i.xiii, on which begin the Letters 
missive and other writings (p. 218), continuing to the 
seventy-fourth leaf, which has the folio number i.xxni. 
There is no folio lxxiv. The seventy-fifth leaf has the 
folio number i.xxv, and on the reverse of this leaf the 
Codex ends (p. 265). The seventy-sixth leaf, which is 
the last original vellum in the volume, has the folio 
number i.xxvi. It should be nt)ted tlr^t the blank mem- 
branes are between the Book of Privileges and the Book 
of Letters, at the division mentioned by Columbus. 

The manuscript itself is complete and consecutive, 
notwithstanding the irregularities and omissions in the 
foliation. Lach sheet of vellum is carefully folded so that 
it becomes two leaves, and these folio sheets are sewn 
sometimes singly as two leaves and sometimes with one 
.sheet inset, so making four leaves. None of the mem- 
branes are cut in the back margins, and there are no 
.single leaves on guards or otherwise, and hence every skin 
is sewn through its own foKl. The vellums were originally 
intended to be cut to a imiform size, but in a very few cases 
some are a little short or irregular in the bottf)m margin. 
With the careful folding all the top and fore edges are very 
even, but they have ne\er been cut since being folded, nor 
have they ever been gilt. 

There arc some small holes, at irregular distances 
from the back in the inner margin, cut clean and sharp 
like worm-holes, but as lx)ok-worms K)ve not vellums these 
may have been made by other insects that are enemies to 
vellum books. There are no holes made by a needle or 
other form of [)ricking which indicate a previous stitching 

or binding, and hence one must cither assume that the sew- 
ing of the present binding was done with such unexampled 
carefuhiess as to exactly utilize all old sewmg holes or else 
that this binding, which was done between 1S48 and 1852, 
is the first that was ever put on the Paris Codex. 

At the end of the Genoa Codex is added a statement 
to the effect that four transcripts were made (see Intro- 
duction, p. xxxix), but there is nothing to indicate when 
or by whom. It was probably between March 22 and 
]\Iay 8- 10, 1502. The transcript on paper taken by 
Carvajal to the Indies early in 1502 and that on j)arch- 
nicnt deposited in the Monastery of Santa Maria de las 
Cuevas are both lost. The remaining two are the Paris 
and Genoa Codices. 

Adverting to the abo\c quotations, Columbus, March 

21, in the confident expectation of being able to get one 
of the transcri{)ts finished ready tor transmission that day 
witii his letter, writes to Oderigo that he is forwarding it, 
and that another shall he soil. He failed, however, to get 
this transcript from the notaries until the next day, March 

22, as appears by the date of the notarial certificate on page 
213. This great haste may j)erhaps partly explain the 
errors in the foliation of the Paris Codex. 

In the meantime the [)romised ^///i7'coj)y was finished. 
The certificate on page 213 is the same in both codices, 
and both bear the same date, March 22. 

The "new writing" may be the letter from the King 
and Queen dated at Valencia de la Torre, Alarch 14, i 502, 
which Columbus received at the " very time of his depar- 
ture" and caused to be inserted at the end of his Book of 
Privileges, so that the transcript is certified only a week 
later than the date of the original letter. lie marks his 
sense of the importance of this " new writing," not only by 
mentioning it in his letters to Oderigo, Imt also by himself 
marking on one of tlie transcripts (that now in Paris), in 
red ink, the hand pointing to a i)articular passage. 

Instead of giving the two cojjies to Rivarola for 
transmission as intended March 21, he gave him only one, 
in the bag with the silver lock, and two letters for the 
Office of Saint George, and there could have been no time

The other he retained about a fortnight in Seville and took 
with him to Cadiz, where, before his departure for the Indies, 
he gave it to Catanio, also for transmission to Oderigo (letter 
of Dec. 27, 1 504). It is possible that in this broken interval 
of less than seven weeks the manuscript may have been 
bound, a theory in accordance with that of eminent Genoa 
antiquaries, who believe their volume was bound before it 
was transmitted by Columbus, and that it is now in the 
original Spanish binding of 1502. The alt^ernative, and 
perhaps the probability, is that the interval may have been 
occupied in executing the table of contents, the marginal 
prdcis, and the ornamental initials and borders of that 
transcript, and that the volume may have been bound by 
Oderico on the occasion of the presentation of the 
cartularies to the Republic in 1670. That binding will 
undoubted!^ be technically described in the " Raccolta di 
Documenti e Studi " now being issued, and as, according 
to the foliation in the table of contents, some blank leaves 
between the " Book of Privileges " and the " Book of 
Letters" are missing, and as the subsequent foliation 
appears to have been tampered with, some particulars on 
these points will surely be included. The volume easily 
enters the cordovan bag (p. xvi). 

It is presumed that Columbus, March 21, had already 
obtained, for the two transcripts, when completed, bags of 
coloured cordovan with silver locks, as he says " another 
similar one [transcript] s/ia// be scni in the same manner" 
and that these bags were for the preservation of the 
•' books " of privileges and " books " of letters and were in 
lieu of substantial bindings. Probably the bag that 
originally covered the transcript now designated as the 
Paris Codex was never forwarded from Italy, or else one 
bag may have been lost at the time of the respective 
bindings, whether in Spain, Italy, or France. 

My projected reproduction in facsimile of the Paris 
Codex naturally suggested to th : Italians the reproduction 
of their own Codex. The City of Genoa has this year 
made a limited number of facsimiles of it bv phototype, 
but without any transliteration, translation or introduction, 




for presentation to certain dignitaries and to those 
Governments wiiose men-of-war participated in the 
naval functions and manoeuvres in Genoese waters on 
the occasion of tiie Columbian celebration there in 

It may be mentioned that the Royal Italian Columbian 
Commission announces that a transliteration and translation 
into Italian of the Genoa Codex (but without photographic 
facsimile) wiliap{)ear in the" Raccoltadi DocumentieStudi, " 
Part II., with an Introduction by the learned antiquaries 
Professor I-uigi Tommaso Belgrano and the Marquis 
Marccllo Staglicno. The expressed opinion of the Marcjuis 
Staglieno and Signor i\ngelo Boscassi, the Director of the 
Archives at Genoa, is that the Genoa transcript is much less 
pel feet than the one taken to Paris by order of Napoleon i. 
and wliicii is now preserved in the 1* rench capital. This 
inxites the following very superficial comparison. The 
Paris Codex contains an addition.!.! transcript of the 
Articles of April, 1492, l)age 218, on which Columbus 
bases his claims and arguments, pages 222-245, while its 
text of the Letter to the Nurse is more extended, as 
mentioned in Mr. Ilarrisse's Introduction. The Genoa 
\()liime contains the table of contents inserted before the 
Codex, the marginal precis, and the statement already 
referred to. The Juller text of the Paris Codex is shown 
by my facsimile. The Genoa C-odex is in another hand, 
more neatly and legibly written, with beautiful arabesijue 
ornaments by i)en and by brush, and many of its initial 
letters are artistically illuminated. 

To all contro\ersialists and especially to those writers 
who claim that there were no portraits of Columbus made 
during his lifetime, I have nothing to .say ; but those 
who are much more imaginati\e and who would like to 
find fices for their fancies whether of Columbus, his sons, 
or of the notaries and scribes, may refer to the notarial 
title-page of the Paris Codex, where they will find sketch 
faces in the v of the last line, in the k of the third line, 
and in the first letter of the page. Different ones there 
and elsewhere arc in the Genoa Codex. These faces 
were drawn at a period when portraits or grotesques were

In conclusion, I give my heartiest thanks to all those 
who from the outset have given me their most cordial co- 
operation and assistance. I am indebted to M. Girard 
de Rialle, the helpful Director of the Foreign Office in 
Paris, and to his courteous assistants ; to Mr. Henry 
Vignaud, my never-failing friend at the American Embassy ; 
to M. Gruel, for his technical examination of the binding 
and his opinions, which coincide with those of M. de Rialle 
and with my own ; to Mr. James Fletcher, the United 
States Consul at Genoa, and through him to Baron 
Podestd (Mayor of Genoa), the Marquis Staglieno, Signor 
Grillo, and Mr. William Smith, for numerous courtesies ; 
to Signor Boscassi for the photograph of the bag at page

translation ; to Mr. R. E. G. Kirk, for valuable assis- 
tance in proof-reading the transliteration and translation ; 
to Messrs. Palm Brothers, who have made the paper in 
close imitation of that used four bundled years ago; to 
Mr. Zaehnsdorf, who has assisted me in carrying out a 
binding of the period ; and finally, I am grateful to Mr. 
Henry Harrisse for his scholarly Introduction. To Messrs. 
Malby and Sons, who made the photographic plates, and 
printed in colours the Coats of Arms and the manuscript 
title-page, and to the Chiswick Press for its careful printing, 
the higliest praise I can give is to refer to this finished

Orijiin of the Four Carlnlayics pnfarcd by order of 

Christopher Columbus in 1 502. Presentation of 

two of them to the Republic of Genoa. 

In tlie hope of rcprcssini^ tlie tlt.'prcilations committed on 
l,ij,'uriaii vessels by Catalan and Majorcan seamen, the 
Republic of Genoa sent Nicolo Odcrijjo to Spain, in 
1501, as special envoy to I'erdinand and Isabella.' 
Christopher Columbus sou^jht his acfiuaintance at 
Granaila, and hail such tre(|uent intercourse with liim 
during' his embassy, that in one of his letters he 
speaks of thi; (ienoese iliploniatist as "knowinj^ more 
about his (Columbus's) own affairs than he ilid himself."' 
The chief to[)ic discussed was the intention on tiie part of Columbus to 
8ssi},'n perpetually to the Hank of St. George, then called the " Ufticio di San 
Giorj,Mo," one-tentii of his income arising; from all his rights and privilej^c.s in 
the New World. The object of the intended j^ift was to reduce the customs- 
duty or ta.\ laid upon provisions brought into the city of Genoa.' Doubtless 
Columbus then also informeil the (ienoese ambassador of his desire to entrust 
to him for safe-keeping a certified copy of the privileges granted by their Catholic 
Majesties as a reward for the discovery of the transatlantic regions.

as we have already *aid, in reilucinj; the imiwst laid on victuals brought into 
the city.' 

He that as it may, on the 5th of January, 1 50J, Columbus rerjucstcd Estcvan 
de la Koc.i and l'< ro Kuys Montero, alcaldes, or city jud^jeH, to repair to his 
dwelline-housc, in the p.u h or quarter of Seville c.dled "Colacinn de Santa 
Maria. There they met tht three not.iries public re<iuirctl for authenticating 
le^al acts of the kind which he intended to execute. These were Gonjcz 
Nieto, Alonso I.ucas, .uid Martin kodrli^uci.' 

Columbus then and then ' xhibited onVin.iIs of the titles, privileges and 
concessions which I'rrdmand and habdia nad i;r.»nted to him,' and having 
■ubmitted these ilocunuits to the in,|/<'ction of the m.agistrates,' requested 
them to permit the above-i.i ntioned Gome/. N'ieto to make several authentic 
copies of the same, ihe permission was iminediUely granted, anil four 
transcripts were duly executed, tlin c on parchment, antt oir "n [lapcr.' 

The documents thus copied and authenticated amounteil otily to thirty- 
five." .Soon afterwards,' however, Columbus c.iused nine more to be engrosscil 
and adiled, but, with the exception of two," williout :>ny authentications. of these doubtless constituted the " Libro de tr.isl.idos de cartas" 
mentioned in his letters to Oderigo," as distinct fnmi what he called "otro de 
mis privilegios," which expression certainly refirs to the coilex in its original 
l.irm, We .ire not certain whether these .idditions wi-re similar in the four 
c.irtiilaries,'" but notwithstanding the ambiguity of the language useil by 
Coliiinliiis in mentioning tiie two sets sent to Oderigo, we believe that the 
additional documents were sewed up or buuiul with the rest, and did not fo m 
conse(|uently a separate package.

One of the copies engrossed on parchment was completed and remittcj 
a few days after March 22, 1502,' to Francesco di Rivarola, or " Ribarol," a 
Genoese banker settled in Seville,' to be forwarded to Nicol6 Oderigo, who 
had returned to Genoa.' This was enclosed in a bag of red Cordovan leather, 
kept fast by means of a silver lock,* and contained, besides, a letter requestin;^ 
him' to acknowledge receipt to Diego Columbus, his son." In that letter 
Christopher also informed Oderigo that another copy of the codex was being 
prepared, and vould be sent to him in the same manner by Ribarol.' Hut 
when at Cadiz, in May, 1502, and on the eve of sailing, he changed his mind, 
and entrusted that dui)licate to another Genoese banker, called Francesco 
Cataneo," to be forwarded imimtliately. It follows that in the course of the next 
summer or autumn the two codices intended for Nicolo Oderigo were actually 
dispatched to Genoa. 

The fourth cartulary, which, like the two last, had been engrossed on 
liarcliment or vellum, was depositid in the Monastery of Las Cuevas," 
Seville, with the archives of the Cohimbus f.unily." 

We will now inijuire has been the fatu of the four collections dl 
authenticated copies. 

Carv.ijal sailed from Spain on the i_^th of l''ebruary, 1502, taking wiih 
Iiim the code.x on paper. No traces of it have ever been found. TIk 
[irobahility is that, on account of its texture, it was destroyed in the course nf 
time by the worms and aiits in St. Domingo. 

The copy ileposited in Las Cuevas is a[)par(jntly the one which Haldassan 
Colombo, of Cuccaro, imu' of tile claimants in tiie great suit for the heirsliip.

^ , the judges on that occasion is as follows : " A bound volume containing 
■;' transcripts of the privileges of the Admiral, executf^d at Seville, January 5, 
:' 1502, and professing to be signed by Martin Rodriguez, a notary public of 

that city."' 

The date and autographic name of the notary indicate that it was one of 

the original transcripts made by order of Columbus in 1502. Our reasons for 
• believing that it is the one which was originally deposited in Las Cuevas, is 

that according to a certificate added to the Genoese codex, only four transcripts 

were executed." Now, one of these, which was on paper, and less complete than 
.., the others, went to Hispaniola, and is not likely to have been sent back to 
; Spain. Two were forwarded directly to Genoa, and can be easily identified, 
' as we will soon show. The fourth one was the Las Cuevas copy, which we 
< take to be identical wilii the legalised transcript produced by the Montferrat 
:'■ claimant, because, to controvert this supposition, the critic must assume that 
;,, the notary Martin Rodriguez made a fi.'"th and antedated copy after Columbus 
:. had left Spain ; which is possible, but not very probable. In the fourth chap- 
'; ter of tlie [jresent introduction, we shall perhaps find other traces of that valu- 
' able manuscript. 

i;V We know what became of the two codices intended for Nicoli) Oderigo. 

Ji,' That diplomatist received them in good order.' Immediately upon his return 
t' to Genoa the second time,'' he remitted to the 15ank of St. George the letter

r is made of his intended legacy of a part of his income to the city of Genoa, 
:/ The two cartularies and the bag of Cordovan leatlier, he retained. As they had 

been sent to him for safe keejjing,^ without specifying the manner in which the 
' recommendation was to be carried into effect, we inier that, in the opinion of 

Oderigo, the archives of his own family were as good a place as any. 

;•, These two precious manuscri[)ts remained in the possession of his desccn- 

.Jdants, till Lorenzo Oderico, in 1O70, presented both of them to the Republic 

-•■' of Genoa, not, however, as a gift absolutel)- disintcrcstetl." In his mind, and 

; in that of his son and heir Giovanni I'aolo, it was rather a bid for certain 

4«favours, as can be seen from these two i)reviously unpublished documents :' —

Sylvcstre dc Sacy went to Genoa in 1805, on a mission from tlic l'"rcncii 
Institute,' he saw one of them in tlie State Archives. If he had seen tlie othi r, 
the existence of a duplicate of a manuscript of that importance would have 
certainly attracted his attention. We infer from his silence on the subject tlmt 
he saw only one of the two codices. Whether the other was kept in a chest 
which he did not e.xamine, or had already disappeared,' is a question whicii at 
the present day cannot be satisfactorily answered. 

The codex whicl> De Sacy saw will be the subject of our next cha|)tcr. 
Its mate was recovered in June, 1816, when the heirs of Count Michel-Anj;el() 
Cambiaso olfered his library for public sale in Genoa. The recovery happened 
under the following circumstances. 

No. 1922 of the Cambiaso cat.iloijuc was a manuscri|)t bearing the title of 
Codi'cc dc Privilcfj del Colombo. The Genoi;sc archivists recognised it as one 
of the two cartularies sent by Columbus to Nicolo Oderigo in 1502. It was 
acquired by the King of Sardinia, who, after causing a cojiy to be made atul 
lodged in the Royal Archives at Turin, sent llu; original as a gift to the city 
of Genoa. It is now prgserved in tlie I'.ilacc of the Genoese'Municipality,"in a 
columnar marble rece|)tacle called " Custodia," together with three autograjih 
letters of Christopher Columbus, and tlie original bag of Cordovan leather in 
wiiich the first duplicate of the codex and the letter to the 15ank of St. George 
were forwarded to Genoa, as we have related. 

In 1S23, the Decurions of that city ordered the manuscript to be translated 
and printed.* .Soon afterwards, a translation into I'-nglish appeared in London,' 
and in 1867 the Spanish text w;is republished in Havana."

yi Discovery among the Archives of the Department of Foreign 

Affairs in Paris. 

V. have now to jijive an account of the discovery of one 
transcript of the Columbus Codex and other Genoese 
documents among tlie muniments preserved in the 
Ministry of I'"()rtMj,'n Affairs at Paris. Uut it is neces- 
sary first of all to make a few remarks regarding that 
archival n.'ixjsitory. 

The archives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 
for a long time .fter their creation by the Marquis de 
Torcy in 1710, were inaccessible, and surrounded with 
a mystery which is not entirely dis[)ellud at the present day. People imagined 
that they contained l(;rribl<; State secrets. No one, therefore, ventured during 
more than a century e\'en to express the wish to enter such hallowed precincts. 
lint under the reign ol l.ouis- Philippe, when documentary history commenced 
to fuul favour in P" ranee, a number of conscientious workers, who had chosen 
for the subject of their studies t!ie reign of Louis XIV'. and the Regency, made 
strenuous efforts to be allowed to consult the archives of that department for 
the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. A chosen few, with great difficulties, 
succeedeil in examining certain files, but the generality of applicants were 
debarred from the privilege. 

Of course, no inventory or catalogue had ever been communicated to the 
public. Perhaps there was none in existence. At all events, the generality 
of historians knew only of such stray lists as could be found in the manuscript 
division of the i'aris National Library.' These, however, related exclusively 
to the dealings of P" ranee with foreign nations one or two hundred years ago. 
Tiiis paucity of data led the searchers (engaged in writing on subjects of an 
earlier period, 
the illiberality 

archives contained nothing which could be of any avail to them. Then the 
CustDilians had a well (.leservetl re()utation for hostility towards all outsiders, 
suflicient to repel cnileavours in that direction. 

Pcing, lu vertluless, anxiuus to study the negotiations initiated in 1629 
by C'ariliual dc Riclielieu t obtain from Pngland the restitution^ of Quebec, 
and vaguely sup[Mising thai tlv dis[)atches of Chateauneuf still existed in wiMt 
was left of the old portfolios, we' ap[iealed, when writing the Notes sur 11 
A'i>tiir//i-/-'mnir, to one of the directors, wiio had been Minister to the Uniteil 
States. This enlightened dipKimatist kindly seconded our research, and, 
on the [lie. I that he reiiuired ilu; documents for his own investigations, 
cibtaiiu d communication of the flies relating to Canada ; which we examined 

r relating to other countries, to view with a sort of indifference

was calculated to convey the impression that tlic Ministry of l'orei^;n Allairs 
possessed any otiier documents tiian such as were of merely local importance. 
Straiif^e to say, it was iiistorical literature which (InaMy forced tiie doors ol 
those I'^yst'TitJUS archives, and disclosed their riclies. 

The admirable Memoirs of the Due de Saint-Simon (1694-1754), as niucli 
on account of peculiar literary merit as of ^reat historical worth, attracted in 
l'"rance, fron: die moment of thiir first publication in an abridj,'ed funn 
(17S9), the ),'rcatest attention. Gradually, as new fr.ij,'ments were publislml 
(1791, 1S29, iS5()), the popularity of the Memoirs increased to such an extent 
that a reijular campaij;n was orj;anized to ferret out tiie ori^'inal manuscript, 
and other writing's of Saint-Simon which had not then been printed. It \\,i, 
j,'enerally believeil that the entire collection l.iy hidden in the archives of ilu; 
department of l''oreign Aff.iirs ; but nothini; ilefinite could be ascertained nn 
the subject. l''inally, by means of not.irial inventories, the complete list 
mule out, anil proofs were ubt. lined those valuable papers were actually 
preserved in the St.ite I )e|)artment. 

The I'aris press tlureu|inii became so cl.imorous, anil protestations fmin 
I'Vench savants were uttered with such enerj,'y, that the Due Decazes n\aile it 
a [)oint, on bein;.; appointed Minister of b'oreii;n ATtairs, to ),'ive .satisfaction tu

And, miiwbiU (iictii, it was particul.irl)' when a or an academician tonk

M. de I'Veycinet, made Minister of I"orei^ni Affairs, and on a day of il,. 
si)rinj;- of iSSo, i-ver to be remembered, the archives of his dep.irtment wen 
tiirown open to the [Jiiblic! 

Immediately upon beiiii; kindly informed these irclii"es coiitain((l

on May 20, iSSo, wi' address<-d a iieti'ion to the '.linister, askiny leave to 
consult those of the I'ifteenth and sixteenth centuries. This was (granted i.n 
the 31st of May, and, bright and earl) the next day, we rep.iired t.) the I'akux 
of the Ouai d'Orsay. 

Tlie custodians introduced us at once into a room in which had been 
eollecti'd, for the purpose of ins[iection, a luiir.ber of ni.mustripts, bound 
in volumes of various sizes. We' were p.irticul.irly stnuk with a series of vc i)

custom ' of annually selecting a foreign nobleman to rule over the Republic. 
There was no other me.m.s of kei'ping at pepr^ the .adverse political parties 
which, when left to themselves, were a constant cause of strife, turmoil, and 
bloodshed. That imported ruler bore the title of Podest.'i. 

In the year 1229,|)o H.alduino received the apjiointment. He c.imc 
from Mologna, and justly enjoyed the reputation of a great jurist." One of his 
first stei)s was to order that all the comjiacts and treaties with foreign nations, 
with the Church, and with the Office of St. George, as well as the privileges, 
deeds, bonds of fealty, public resolutions, in fine, every act of importance »o the 
Commonwealth, in the past and in tlie future, should be transcril by 
appointed notaries in registers, to which full f.iith and credit was to be g./en, 
and which were di'signed to n.'place the originals in case of destruction.' 

The registers thus compiled soon became so numerous that, fearinjj their 
dispersion, the City Council in 1253 ordered a new transcription, but in one 
very lar^^e register only. In 1296. there were nevertheless ni existence already 
tW" such enormous books of records, and the series was continued until a 
Stxtus had been completed in 1635.' 

It that venerable and m.ignificent set of original and authentic 
documents which been spread on the table. With it were other manuscrifjts 
not less iin|)ortant, particularly the decisions promulgated by Marshal dc 
Boucieaiilt, when, acting as reiiri.sentative of the King of France at the 
beginning of the fifteenth century, he re-organi/cd the administration of Genoa, 
and ciiaeted those' laws which contributed so much, for more than 300 years, 
to the pros[)erity of the Republic' There were, besides, manuscripts of great 
beauty .ind historical importance, such, for instance, as the Annals of Caffaro- 
Tasihifellone, the oldest of the Genoese chroniclers," and those of his successors, 
including the Aiinalia of Giorgio Stella. iMiially, resting upon a pile of 
Misallaiu-a, chielly in the handwriting of Federico I'Cderici, we beheld one of 
the two original cartularies which Christopher Columbus had sent to Nicolo 
Oderigo in 1502 ! 

In the following chapter we shall endeavour to ascertain how such manu- 
scripts h.ippen to be at [iresent in the Ministry of b'oreign Affairs. lUit 
before liisinissing the subject just now, it sl-.ould be stated that they were spoils 
sent from Geno.i during tin; long occupancy of the city by the b'rench at the 
beginning of the present century, and have been retained, although the over-

') I 

throw of Napoleon s empire hail in most cases led to llio restitution of tin 
foreijjn arciiives coliecteil in I'aris. 

Nearly ail the otiu r ilocuments of Genoese ori),'in were in fact sent 
back to Italy in iSi6, but they remained in Turin durinj; at least forty years,' 
I'Mnally, the Sardinian (government consented to restore the Genoese (lortion 
to the city of Genoa ; anil when the cases were opened, the absence of the 
Lihti jurium, Caffaro and Stella was noticed, but without surjirise. 'I he 
archivists shared the common belief that those manuscri|)ts had disappeard 
from the Li^jurian State Repository at the time when the archives were bcin^; 
jiackeil to be sent to I'" ranee; as it was well known that several of the Genoese 
employes then committed great depredations, and stole (piantitics of valuable 
manuscripts, especially from among those which were engrossed on parchment 
or vellum. 

Patriotism, or a taste for collecting historical documents, was not the 
incentive of sucli nefarious acts. They were jiromptcd simply by the desire to 
turn the volumes into money ; and, in fact, entire files were sold, and put to 
ignominious uses in liie city. I'artlinient was an article employed in variiuis 
ways; but it had become so scarce in Cieiioa, that to copy the treaty of pcm 
of i74iS none could be obtained, except by tearing olf finir blank sections from 
the //<;/«;« Septimus} So that wiien, several years after the removal of the 
archives to I'aris, a liuplicate of the Primus and one of the Secundus^ \\{:\v 
found in the workshop of a gold-beatet in Genoa, ready to be cut up, everyone 
became convinced that the rest of the Lidri had been destroyed in serving tu 
foliate gold for gilding purixises. 

This great misfortune did not deter the last archivist of the Office of 
St. George, Signor Cornelio Desimoni, from endeavouring to reconstruct thusc 
documental series, which are of such jtanimount 'inport.mce for the history ni 
the Ligurian Republic. When wif first met tliat venerable savant, at the. tiiii< 
of our early researches among the Genoese ..rchives, he was seduloiislv 
engaged in that patriotic undertaking, but with 'incited success, notwithstanilii:]^

NE of the greatest wishes of Napoleon I. was to make 
i'aris the capital of the civilizeil world, in every sense 
of the term. An entire chapter could be writtiMi on 
the plans which he devised to that effect. One of them 
was to centralise in a lari'e iialace, which his architects 
commenced to build,' all tlie archives of the French 
l-'mpire, then embracing most of the continent of 
Lurope, with a fair prospect of soon absorbing the rest.' 
The project, which seems to have been conceived 
in 1S09,' was immediately put in execution. On the 7th of October, iHio, 
8,20'j cases of documents sent from Vienna were already unpacked and lodgeil 
in the attic of the Soubise Palace ; thirty wagons full of Spanish archives were 
on tlu.'ir way from Simancas to I'aris, and about 470 more had been [irepared 
to follow. Austria again forwarded 933 cases, Rome 12,147. Then came 
the archives of Florence, I'ertigia, Spoleto, Sienna, I'arma, I'iacenza, Genoa, 
besides luiincrous files taken from the rejiositories of Tyroi, Galicia, Belgium, 
and Holland,' Archivists from those countries were compelled to accompany 
the consignments to I'aris. 

At first, only important documents seem to have been selected for trans- 
rtation to the l'"rench capital ; but soon afterwards, the rest was [jacked up 
idily, and forwarded.' The Soubise I'alace and its new deiieiulencies 
became so crowded, that Napoleon himself had to interfere, and damp the 
Kal of his chief archivist, Daunou." The bulk, however, was already on the 
bJgh road, in long files of wagons, m.iny of which finally returned to their 
legitimate abode without having lieen unU)aded. 

The little we know concerning the Parisian history of those foreign 
irchives, is to be derived from certain printed statements written and published

restitution of all the foni^jn archives in 1S15. Commissioners were appointed 
by Spain, Rome. Austria, etc., to retake possession. l he Kin^; ol Sanlini.i 
sent Si^jnor A. I- Costa, who received, April 33, r«i6, from M. de la Kue, who 
had supursedeil Uaunou, in the Soubiso I'alace, " one hundred and fifty-one 
cases containing tin; archives of denoa, to^;ether with a portion ol those ol 
Savoy anil I'icdmont." The wording' of the receipt, and the f.ict that no 
Hcheilulc or list was ailded, seem to indicate that the documents were still in 
their original cises, and therefore had not been placed on the shelves of the 
yreat l-nuLh archival centre, or even unp.irked.' 

Costa's receipt covers 151 case.s, whilst Charbonel, the common carrier 
to whom the archives were delivered .it tienoa in 1S13, arknowled>,'es havin;; 
received in .ill only i 10. The Soubise I'alace has harboured tluirefore 41 cases, 
the oriyjiii of whith nei ds to be ascertainetl. Were thcsi! e.xclusively com- 
posed ol rlc jinents coming,' from Savona, Chiavari, Ivr<a, 'I'lirin, Cliamlu'ry, 
,\h\andria, iiid <ither cities of I'inlmiml and S.iv()^', or did they not also 
include oilier cases which mi^,'ht have Ix'cn n.'moved from G<'noa prior to the 
autumn of 1S13 .' This may be, as we sh.ill presently show that Genoese docu- 
ments were t.iken away before the latter date. Hut the point, so far as the 
eases remitted to Costa are concerned, can be of no im[ioitance, sinct; we 
know positivily, from Canale'silescriiition of thtjn, that they did not contain the 
maiuiscripts which we are now examining;. Nevertheless, it behoves the critic 
to investij,'atc the question first removal of Cienoese archives. 
' l)n May 7, iSoS,' an Imperial decree was issued, orilirin^ that all the 

archives of the 'Iransalpitie Dep.irtmeiils, of whith Cienoa was one, should be 
brought to Turin, not however in trnnsi/it pre|).ir.itory to bcinjj sent to !•' ranee ; 
for the notion of makinj; Paris the ),'reat centre of luirope did not 
orij,'in.ite till a y<'ar or two afterwarils. The decree was fouiuKil on the 
pr.ictice, still followeil in I'r.mce, of centralising the archives of each province 
in its chief city. 

On the 9th of September, 1 ,SoS, t\venty-('ive cases were removed from (ieiioa. 
Was it in compliance with the alle^jed decree of M,iy 7, precedinj,', and, in con- 
.seipience, were they sent to lurin, or, r.ither, t<» Paris.' We do not 
sie why so I.irge a shipment of archives should have been forwarded to tlu 
,( I'Vench .it such an e.irly ilale. Dur impression is that notwithstandini.;; 
the .idilress inscribed on the boxes, — "To tlu; Minister of the Interior," the 
bulk of the expeuition of iSoS went to Turin, lie that as it may, there is no 
scheiliile of the contents of the twenty-livt; cases. We possess only their in.u k, 
vi/ , !■' M, and wci>,dit. Can.ile, however, says, without statinj,' his authorities, 
that they containeil " the <iri^inals of the I lislory of Cienoa." ' ll so, the>rt 
junum, Caifaro, Columbus Coilex, and the rest, may luive been in one or two of 
them; ami September, 180S, is the time of the ri'tnoval of those 
documents from tjenoa. H'lt, thus far, this is only .m hypothesis. 

On the i.Sih of June, 1.S52, a brenth archivist, M. Camille I'ricss, was

sent by the Institute of Franci: to Genoa, for llic purpose of niakln^^ ri'senrdics 
in tlie State archives. The main object of liis mission was to study the 
documents relatiiij^ to Corsica ; the Academy, however, also instructed him to 
investigate the tiles whichconcerned the administration of Marshal dc IJoucicauIt, 
and others relative to I'Vench history.' 

Mis report, when lie returned to Paris, was read before the Academy, 
March 1 1, if>,S.3. The Permanent Secretary, after remarkini,'' that the mission 
had |)rovetl a failure,^ matle tile following; statement : " AccordinL,' to what was 
said to M. I'riess, tlie St.ite papers anil historical documents were abstracteil 
and taken to I'aris, //i iSo6, followinu; upon llu- researches which M. dt- Sacy 
hail m.xdv in the jiuhlii; repositories of Cicnoa."' 

M. de Sacy had tiien been dead lilteen jears ; but many of his former 
col!e.iL;ues were present at the meetinjj, and no one protested atjainst the 
allei;ation, which, after all, rested only upon the statements made to M. l''riesi 
by the (ienoesi; archivists, nearly half a century after tile alleged event, 
rile .Secretary, however, made tlu' followinj,^ remark : 

" Without h.iviiiL; to justify happens to have been ;i (oi)uiili)ut\ and 
not a lOinialhui, as rei^.irds the eiitirel)- scimtitic mission of M. de .Sacy tn 
Genoa, ami die rem(i\.d of the jiapers, it is to be rej^Tetted that M. I'riiss 
slioukl not have known, before repljint; to the custoili.uis of the Genoese 
archives, of the declar.ition from the rliic f .ircliivist of the kini^'dom made in 
iSi6, to the effect he hail just remitted to Sii,Mior Costa, the Sardinian 
commissioner, all the collections which c.ime from Genoa."' 

Til. It st.Uenieiit indie. ites a sort of coiifu.'iion in the mind of the .Secretar\-, 
who e\ ideiitly possessed inform. ition only as rei;ards the arciii\is sent to the 
Soubise I' which c.inie to I'.iris so late as 1S13, and were returned t'l 
Piedmont in 1 S 10, ajip.inntly witliout havinu; been even unp.uked. 'I"he word 
" ci'ineideiue " in his rem. irk is con'ii:(|Uenlly an error on his p.irt : and until .1 
document has iicrn ]>ro.lucrd by the Genoese .uxhivists to provi' tlnir 
aliet,'.itio!i tln' renio\.d of the .irchives in Gt lui.i .uid the mission of M. 
de .S.icy were " eonni'Lti il." or e\en " coincidi'd." the st.Uemeiit must be 
lelt in abey.uice. 

I his allej^ed intervention of M. de Sacy induces us to relate how lie 
ha])pened to ^-o to Genoa. 

At the close of tlu- last century, there was current .iuioiil,' the I'reiuh 
savants a letjend, just as there is one .it present e\(r) where, relati\r 
to the existence ol imiiortant orient.d in.uHiscripts in certain inaccessible 
recesses. In our il.iys, credulous people point to Sam.irc.uul. or to the 
Golden Horn in Constantinople. I'liruurl)-, it (ieuo.i which enjoyed 
that reput.Uion. The old orientalists were couvinciil that the inunerous 
incursions of the Genoese in the l^ast. and their wars with the S.iracens. ha 1 
been ])roducti\e of numerous .•\r.d)ic. Turkish and Hebrew manuscripts,

ment in Genoa, or in the Bank of St. George. To ascertain the matter. 
Napoleon ordered the Institute of France to send a mission to initiate 
researches in the Genoese archives. It was intrusted to M. Sylvestre de Sacy. 

The great French savant repaired at once, in 1805, to Genoa ; and, let it 
be said and noted, he never made another journey out of France. His first 
visit was to the Palace of the Government ; and when by the orders of Lebrun 
and of M. Bureau de Puzy, the French Prefect of Genoa, the employes 
opened to him the Arckivio sei:;rdo, he went deliberately to two cabinets, or 
presses, which had been privately pointed out as containing many ancient 
manuscripts of importance. 

We know from his own debcription that the Libri jurium, Caffaro, 
and Federici's memoranda, together with the Columbus Codex, were then kept 
in those two cabinets, the entire contents of which he carefully inventoried.' 

M. de Sacy's account led us to infer that these documents, all of which, 
as we have already said, still exist side by side in the Ministry of Foreign 
Affairs, just as when kept in the Genoese repository, eighty-seven years ago, 
were not separated by the parties who first packed and sent them to France, 
evidently all in the same case. Our inference was strengthened by the fact 
that the documents form a sort of medley, with no historical connection for 
the most part. It is clear that the Columbus Codex, or the papers concerning 
the difficulties with Savona, for instance, have but little analogy to the col- 
lection of Statutes at large and other legal documents embraced in the Libri 
juritim. These circumstances forced upon us the conviction that the Genoese 
series which we are now examining were originally packed up precisely as 
they came out of the cabinet, and belonged to a case kept undisturbed and 
entire until its contents were lodged in the State Department of F" ranee. 

The deliberate manner in which M. de .Sacy caused the cabinets to be 
ofjened, as well as the priv.Ue information which prompted his action, indicate 
that in the opinion of his informers, and in his own, those two cabinets con- 
tained the most precious documents in the Archivio segrdo. And although 
tiiere was among them only one of immediate interest to that savant, a Hebrew 
Bible in six large folio volumes, the careful analysis which he gave then and 
afterwards of the Libri jurium shows that those documents proved extremely 
interesting to him.' 

Taking into consideration that his countrymen in 1S05 were absolute 
masters of the cit)', may he not have conceived then the desire of endowing 
F' ranee with this admirable set of ancient and historical manuscripts ? Such 
a thought was in keejiing, it must be said, with the practice of the time. 
The conquests of the F'rcnch, in Belgium, in Holland, in the Rhenish pro- 
vinces, in Italy, were always followed by the arrival of agents sent expressly

from Paris to select in the conquered cities such objects cf art and manuscripts 
as the Govcrnm('nt thoM,t;;lU ilesirable to add to the p^ lie collections in the 
Louvre and National Library. Those agents were extremely keen and com- 
petent, and invariably chose manuscrii)ts of historical, jihilological, or artistic 
importance,' disdaining, as a rule, that mass of theological and ecclesiastical 
writings which constitute the bulk of collections everywhere in Europe. So 
fir as Genoa was concerned, a number of its media-val charters were in the 
hands of French savants so far back as the year kSoo,' The famous original 
Caffaro, which is among the jewels of the Paris National Library, ' is one of the 
manuscripts which found their way to the ca[>ital of I'rance in that manner. 
Under the circumstance's, it was not impossible that AL ile Sacy should have 
called the attention of ^L iJureau de Puzy to those ilocuments, and expressed 
the wish to have them sent to 1'" ranee, in iSo6. 

All this reasoning, however, would contratlict two facts. The first is thai 
there are no traces in Genoa of a removal of archives b'^fore iSoS ; and con- 
seejuently, the archivists who made the statement to M. Priess spoke- at 
random. The second fact is that on the 7th of July, 1S07, those ilocuments 
were still in the same cabinets in Genoa where M. de Sacy hail examined 
them two years previous. We possess his own statement to that effect. 

In the report which he submitted to the Institute at the above-mentioned 
date,' after describing the Libii juriutu, Caffaro, Columbus Codex, iSrc, &c., 
and the two c.diiiuts where they were k<'pt, M. de Sacy adiled: "I have 
examined with the utmost care all the volumes, imnuscri|its, boxes, bundles 
and portfolios vhiih arc priscncd :^nlltin the sdinc, and tlr.ifteil a succinct

liie latter." The Genoa and Paris eartniaries contain only one document i: 
Latin, and tliat is the scvitd Hull of AlexanchT \'I., said inadvertently hy Mr. 
Lverett to have existed in no other codex than his own. Hut as the title oi 
the manuscrijjt mentioned " lUillas," in the plural tense, we suppose that i; 
embraced both Bulls (May 3ril and 4th, 1493). 

On the other hand, Mr. I''vcrett's cocU'x was written on [)archment, aii(| 
set ft)rth the first thirty-seven ' documents of the Genoese manuscri()t, that is 
the on'ijinai series which the j;reat navi^'ator exhibited to the notaries, an! 
caused to be authenticateil by the alcaldes. 

These data, however, are not sulVicient to identify beyond a doubt tlv 
I'iverett codex with the vellum one which was dt'posited at Cuevas. jiu; 
if the former is ever found attain, and shown to contain the preamble of Martin 
l\<>ilri,i;ut'Z, as well as the authentication at the end of the thirty-sixth ' docunicm 
of the Genoese manuscript, then it will very prob,d)ly be the Las Cuevas (>: 
Uaklassare Colombo codex, thouj;h the documentary additions should o. 
ilifferent from those in the Genoa and P.iris c.irtularics. Haldassare may h.u. 
t.ikcn that valuable maniiscri])t to Italy, when he returned home in 1605 ; ;uu: 
its beinu; discover<-d in I-'lorence by Mr. Lvt rett couKl be accounted for in tin; 

We now come to the codex |ircserved in Genoa, the vicissitudes of whli: 
have been already described in the preceding' j'-iK'^'^' '^^ '^•>'' ••^ known. N^t 
havinjj it before our eyes just at present, we borrow P'.ither .Spotorno's descri],

Tlic writinp is a species of Gothic. On the back of the title is the coat-of-arnis of 
Cliristophcr Columbus. 

The next leaf contains the table of the documents contained in the manuscript. 

Then bcj;in tlic documents themselves, which occupy forty-two leaves, numbered 
only on one side. The initial letters are painted and ornamented ; antl die ar^jument of 
each document is written in the margin in a beautiful miniature character. Strictly 
^iicakiiit;, the MS. finishes at the end of the forty-second leaf (Document XXXVI.), w'.iere 
the subscriptions of the nntaries and alcaldes of Seville are placed. . . . Then follows, on 
tii'ht pages of parchment, the Hull of I'ope Alexander VI. about the famous lire of 
demarcation. Then follow eight other pages of documents, written after the first, and 
legalised in the usual form ; and these are succeeded by five blank leaves. 

Next comes a document in which Columbus comments upon his privileg .<! and 
defcnils his rights ; this occupies three pages, the fourth heing The piece which 
follows is of tlie same description ; in this Columbus himself reca|)itulates methodically 
the articles of the convention which he matle with the Catholic nionarchs, on his setting 
out on his first expedition, and defends his rights with inuch warmth and force of 
reasoning. This occupies nine pages and part of a tenth. 

After this comes Columbus's Letter to the Nurse of the Prince Don Juan, which 
fills ten pages. 

On the last leaf is a memorandum of the different copies which had been made of 
the original privileges of Columbus ; and this finishes the part of the MS. which is 
on pan linient. 

The two autogr.iph letters of Columbus to his friend Nicolo Oderigo, written on 
p.ijier, .ire pasted into the book ; as is also the reply of the Magistrate of St. George to 

At the end of the whole, there is a pictorial .sketch' on half a sheet of paper,

havinij seen that or any seal in the Genoa codex. l'orha])s tliere was one

This monogram constitutes the well known signature of Christopher 
Columbus, but without the words " xi'o ferkns," and with the addition of a 
terrestrial globe, which is not mentioned anywhere. The exact meaning of 
these initials has not yet been ascertained ; and although his successors are 
ordered in his will to use the same signature, he has failed to give the 
necessary explanation. The clause reads as follows : 

"Dan Die^o, my son, or any other 
who shall inherit this entail, after in- 
herilini^ ami coming into possession of 
the same, shall sif;n with my si_i;natinc 
which I mno make use of, which is an 
X with an S over it, and an M with a 
yeoman A over it, ami over that an .V, 

" D. Diego, mi hijo, 6 cualqui(;r otro 
que heredarc este mayorazgo, despucs 
lie liabcr horedado y estado en poscsion 
lie clio, tirme do mi finna, la cual agora 
acostrumbro, que cs una X con una S 
(.ncima, y una M con una A roinana

una Y grifga, con una S encima con 
sus rayas y virgulas," ' 

ami then a (ireek V, with an S oi'er it, 
7oith its lines and commas." 

According to Spotorno, these seven letters signify the words Xiustin, 
.San'Cta Makia, VosKi'iius, and, added to the last line read : Salva-me, A'ristus, 
Maria, ]'ose/>hus. 

Other interpretations, however, have been proposed :

The letters, indeed, lend themselves to a multitude of combinations, but 
what Columbus really meant cannot at the present clay be confulciuly alfirmtil. 

As lu the two autograph letters to Oderigo, both of wIulIi bear the above 
described signature, they are no longer pasteil into the book.' The Synilic of 
Genoa ordered them, some years ago, to be taken out, and inserted each 
separately, between two i)anes of glass, and frameil. 

There is no necessity fur ilescribing the Paris codex, as a facsimile of it 
is presented herewith, complete, and taken direct from the original, recently 
on exliibition (on the occasion of the fourth centenary of the discovery ul 
.America), in the Geographical Department of the Paris National Library. 
The only additional iletails of interest are that each leaf measures 29 by 2v 
centimeters ; that the vellum is particularly fresh, with some blank membranes

As we had oceasion to state when we first maile known and described in 
detail the Paris codex, in 1884,' there are between the two codices many 
dilferences in the spelling and abbreviaticms. The I'aris codex is somewhat 
more complete. Its text of the Letter to the Nurse, for instance, contains in 
addition the following sentence :

Cliristn|)her ColiMiihus frequently added to his printed books and manu- 
scrijits Certain marks id call attention. 'I'hey consist cliietly of a double cross,

vari t)', especial!)' in the sliap<: of the cwi'i ar(nnul tlie wrist; sometimes the 
foiearm is adileil. 

'I'liere are two such maniform signs in the I'aris codex, and one in that of 
(ienoa. The sign in the latter is on the verso of the third leaf, facing the 
■ loilowing words : 

" E tengo p'.)r i)ien ([ue todas las

This refers to Cohunbus's claim t.f one-third of the gains, which ho 
lirlicved to apply to all l.iiuls wiiich he, and the navigators wiio came after 
hiiii, tniglit discover, l-'or further information, we beg to rel'<T the reader to

Tile lirsi maniform sign in tlii' I'aris codex is in red ink on the verso of

lullowiiig sentence addressetl to I'erdiiiaud and Isabella (we quote from the

This sentoncc is not in the first Papal Hull of May jrcl, 1493. 

The socoml si},'n is on tlie recto of the fiftv-third leaf (p. 21 1), in the lettir 
addressed to C()liunl)us liy l''erdinand and Isabella, March 14th, 1502, and 
opposite the following important sentence ; 

" Y tened [)or (jierto, que do vuestra "/\nd rest assured that ar were much

vistes vos y lo conosqieron todos you yourself perceived it clearly, and it

This, let it be s.iid, is the only allusion to the shameful treatment inllittcil 
on Columbus by Hohadilla which we could fuid in documents emanating either 
from l'"i;rdinand or Isabella at any time. 

On the verso of the sixty filth leaf (p. 228) there is in the margin of tlic 
Paris codex, only, this exclamation, in some unknown handwriting of the time 

" Mira que dice que gano las Indias " Observe that he says he xained //;■ 
contra la opinion ile toilo el mundo." /ndies contrary to the opinion of 1 

'whole world." 

That marginal note is in a legal opinion concerning Columbus's right, 
and privileges, oppositt? the passage : 

" La razon es por que Sus Alte/as 
yslas c tierra firme le mandaron ganar, 
y dillas s(,i(la ::it lUe Ic titularin

" The reason is, because their ///(,'/ 
nesses commanded him to ,C'"" island 
and mainland, and thereof especiiil!\ 
they desii;naled him Admiral, and fi\'iK 
them and in them he oui^ht to have / 
reward, as one who is Admiral then.]

the scribe, who, writing in 1 502, ,uul recollecting the dale of the authenticaiin!

and a lion to the coat of arms which, out of politeness, tliey reco^;nised as his, 
iliey did not permit iiim, as is >;enerally believed, lolluwing (.Jviedo' and 
Casas,' to (piarter the exact arms of Castile and l-«:on. 

In heraldic science there can be no " nearly." It is entirely one thinj; or 
the other, and the dill'erence in a char^;e, in an enamel, or in a colour, 
is sutlicient to establish a (undamental distincii<m between two coats of arms. 
Now, if it is possible that at the end of the fifteenth century, the lion in the arms 
of Spain, instead of bein^j joules, as it is constantly represented, was on the 
coiMrAry /inrfiute, or vit)let,' no one doubts that in the royal coat of arms the 
first (piartcT is, and always has been, ^'«/<i with a castle of* surmounted by thrij; 
towers likewise or, in masonry, and voiiled azure, Columbus, by the terms of 
the letters patent, to have his first (luarter simf/e with a castle or ; the 
other, ari;eni with lion piirfiure, lan^ued sinopie. Nevertheless, Columbus 
(uiartereif the enamels of the royal coat of arms ; that is to say, instead of 
i/iacin^f the castle on a j,'reen fii^ld, he |)iit it on red ; ami the lion, which shoulil 
be purple, is brown, and without the .tnimal's ton).;ue beiii).; tinteil jjreen. These 
ijlej^itiin.ite colours make this part of the coat of arms identical with the cor- 
respoiulin).; part of the royal arms, which was certainly not the intention of 
I'erdinand and Isabella. 

These are not the only chanjjcs which Columbus took upon himself to 
introduce into the coat of arms ^jrantcd to him in 1493. In the second ([uartiT, 
for example, tlwre are not islands or alone, It also contains a continent 
emerj,'in^;. An addition of this sort can hardly have be(!n made until after the 
year i.S'^o, on the return from the voy.i^'e in which Columbus discovered the 
country of I'aria ; unless tluit was meant for Cuba, which at first he 
tlioii;;lit to be identical with Cathay or Asia. 

linally, we observe in a supplementary qi arter, azure with five anchors 
or lyin^j Hat, and pl.iceil two, one, and two. IK'ieilo'^ says that these anchors 
were tiie siyjn of the Admir.ilship of the Indies, an office which was placed on 
the same footin;,' with the .Vcnnir.ilsliip of Castile. We note, howe'ver, that in 
the ili)i:unients rel.itive to the prerogatives of the- Admiral of Castile, of which 
,111 autiienticateil copy was j^iven to Columbus, by order of their Catholic 
.M.ijestiis, in 1.(07. no nuntimi is inaile of arms of ili^'iiities, interior or excerior." 

'i'he coat of arms ends at the- point by a division cont.iinin^ the charges aiui 
enamels which, accordinj,' to Columbus, constituted the arms of his ancestors. 

This his ri^dit. The letters patent slate that powt'r is j^'iven to him 
to ins'Tt "on the sinister side, the .inns which he was wiint to bear." These

\Vc li.ivr cxiilaincd c].si:whcrc ' thu reasons wliich militate against tlii; 
aristocratic jiretensions of Ciiristopher Columbus. It has neverthultss 
appeared to us necessary to consult, and we have examined with the greatest 
care, the numerous nobiliaries, manuscript and in print, which are found in tin; 
public libraries, and in the heraldic colleges, no* only of Genoa, but of thu 
whole of Italy. Such a coat of arms is nowhere in existence, and no known 
arms, whether in Italy, Spain, I'ortugal or elsewhere, at all resemble it. 

After the escutcheon serving as frontispiece for the Paris and Geiuj.i 
codices, and which we have just di'scribed, the most ancient heraldic represcii 
tation, and that which has served as a type for most of the Columbus coats df 
arms, is the wood engraving inserted in the llistoria General dc las I ndias ^i 
Oviedo, printed at Seville in 1535.^ 

The shield and the charges are conformable to the escutcheon in the tun 
cartularies, but we observe in addition, in the vignette, some exterior 
ornaments. These ct)nsist of a helmet in profile ; on the helmet, a globe ^' r. 
mounted by a cross, and a mantle of acanthus leaves. The enamels are (jii!', 
mentioned in the detailed and strictly heralilic descri|)tion given by Ovicdi, 
who was very expert in these matters. However, we observe, in his explana- 
tion, details which do not agree with the wording of the letters patent, ,1 
wording against which nothing can prevail, since- it is authentic and complete. 
Thus, accoriling to Oviedo. the first cpiarter, insteatl of being .?/«('//(•, is <,'«/, , 
"en campo ili; goles i) sanguiiu) : -on a fielil i^ules or red"; the isl.mds ar' 
dotted with gold, but tintiil very percejitibly with siiwple : " muy vi'rdes : — vi r\ 
green." In addition to the islands, he indicates a continent: " tierra cim 
tiniiada : — a continuous tract i-f land," and, if the lion is purpure and langiied 
it bears a golden crown.'' 

When we atld to these diverg(;nces the atldition of the motto (to wliii; 
we sh.ill return), the helmet and the mantle, marks of honour which the letter 
patent pass over in silence, iuit wiiich Oviedo carefully details, we .ir^ 
convinced that the /ealmis historiogr.ipher wrote' his description, not m^ 
authentic docuinents, Imt by drawing his inspir.ilion exclusively from a 1 ■ 
arms which was not even the om; oi which tlie family boasted, and witlu ,: 
endeavouring to verily its composition. 

Neither was I. as Casas accpninted with the letters patent of the :c! 
May, 1493; otherwise he wouhl not have said that the castle was on a fir;. 
lollies, and the lion or on a ti(;ld ari^eiil (metal on metal I).' 

There is, in the Memorial del /'leyto.' an entire chapter dt.'voted to li 
alleged original arms of the Colomlii. It is in tlu; documentary jiroofs ar. 
claim uf I'Vaneisca Colon, wife df the licentiate Ortegon, and ancestor of t:.'

Justl)' opposing the pretensions of HaKlassare ("olombo, the valiant heire 
denieil that the escutcheon brought from Cuccaro was that of the ancesti r 
of Christojiher Columbus, but she only furnished, as a proof, the descriptu : 
given by (Oviedo.

or with a bend aziire on a chief fettles, an escutcheon which, on the authr rity of 
their Catholic Majesties, Columbus had intercalated in his new arms, aj being 
the arms of his ancestors. Baldassare indeed produced simply a coat of arms 
azure with three doves argent. ^ , ^ 

Brazening the matter out, he replied to her that the house of the Luccaro 
Colombi, six hundred and forty years old, may have had offshoots who 
adopted arms different from those of their ancestors. " Some," said he, " bear 
azure with two doves art^ent, with bends of that metal and a cross sinople ; 
others a single dove, perched on a mountain, with three bends gules and of ; 
others have three bends, two c'r and one gules; others, like himself, Baldas- 
sare, bear azure with three doves argent, a helinet surmounted by the emblem 
of justice, and the motto Fides, S/>es, Charitas} 

And in support of his assertion that these latter arms were also those of 
Christopher Columbus, even after his arrival in Spain, the Ligurian claimant 
produced a certificate by Diego de Urbina, King-at-.irms, delivered the 3rd of 
Ai)ril, 1 59 1, by which the chief of the heralds declares 'o have found in an 
ancient book of genealog'es drawn up by Garci Alonso de Torres," King-at- 
arins of Ferdinand of Aragon, a chapter entitled : "Los que sc d.zen de Colon, 
I) lien de azul eon una paloma de plata : — Those called Columbus bear azure with 
a dove argent." 

Uoila Francisca retorted, and with reason, that Diego de Urbina had 
only considered the ancient Colons of Spain, that is, thosj of Valencia and 
Aratjon, who, absolutely strangers to her family, were called, in reality, 
" Coloma." Baldassare replied by a fresh certificate from Urbina, declaring 
that the Colomas of Aragon and Valencia bore gules with a dove argent. 
This unimportant argument only proves that the Colombi of Cuccaro and the 
Columbus of Spain, like all the Columbuses, Colons, and Colombi of Europe,^ 
nobles, or claiming to be such, had allusive arms. 

Besides, is it probable tiiat Colinnbus would have '"i.rnished the royal 
herald-at-arms, for insertion in his new coat of arms, with this bend azure on a 
tiiief i^idiS, which is nowhere to be found, if he, tl'.e alleged legitimate de- 
scendant of the lords of Cuccaro, Conzano, and Rosignano, whose nobility was 
lost in the night of time, had possessed the right of bearing their arms ? 

This discussion shows that all the Colombi of Italy, with claims to 
nobility, had arms of which the distinctive sign was a dove. The Colombi 
(if I'iacenza, for exami)le, that very family whom historians persist, without any 
proofs whatever, in regarding as the stock out of which Christopher Columbus 
t une, bore azure with tiiree mountains sinople, on the second of which was a 
dove argent. 

This fact is clear from a iliploma from Matthias, lunpcror of Germany, 
dated 2;tli May, 161 5, conlirmiiig and am|)lif)ing tlie ancient arms of .1 certain 
.\ntoiiio Colombo, of I'iacenza, in which the following phrase is observed :

in as far as it is needful we gfacioush 
concede and grant aneiu to hint and to

which they arc henceforth to bear." 

This diploma does not describe the ancient arms, but since it "ratifies ami 
confirms them," tlicy arc necessarily comprised in the shield whicli includes tln: 
original arms as well as the new ones ; a shield which is described in thcst 
terms : 

solum ratificamus, ct confirmamus, sed 
etiam augemus, et exornamus, et qua- 
tenus opus est de novo in hunc, qui 
sequitur, moduni post hac dcferendu

thereof up to the middle three nwuntaiiu 
if green colour, the central one somavhai 
higher than the others ; and on the 
summit of the central mountain a w/iiic 
Dote bearing in its beak a slip of olive 
a human head reclines upon the shield! 

" Scutum azureum, scu ceruleum, u 
cujus basi ad medictatcm usque tres 
montes viridis coloris, medio illoruin 
aliquid altiore ; in sumniitate vero 
montis medii Cohuuba alba ramuscu- 
liini oliv;e rostro contincns ; scuto in- 
cumbat humanum caput." ^ 

It is incontestable, moreover, that in none of the arms attributed to ih: 
Colombi of I'iacenza'' do we find arms or, with bend azure on a chief gulus. 
It is also certain that all the |)atriciaus of that name, in Italy, bore a dovo, 
l.ipwin;^', or rin,i;dovc on their arms. The i^'ieat Genoese navigator, then, woull 
have been the only iioMe, aiiu)iiL,'st the Coioiniii, presenting the anomaly o; 
I)()sscssing a of arms of which the piece did not express the nanv 
of the family to wluch it belonged, although homonyniy as much as tlie tra 
ilitions and ta.ste of the ])eriotl favoured the inclusion of a dove. 

This is only a secondary induction, we ailniit; but when we add thereto 
the fact that the coat of arms given by Columbus as his own is absolutely uii 
known ; we are ablj to trac(: the filiation of tlie great navigator back to a; 
least the fourteenth centur)', without ever coiiiu ctiiig him, in spite of the e.\i> 
tiMice of a mass of ducumciits, witii .my of the [-.itrician families of the name if 
Colombo ; that a nobleman could h.irdly leave his caste, whatever his povertv 
and his misfortunes might be ; ami finally, th.U tiie fuller, brothers, uncles, ,u: : 
cousins of Christopher Cohinibus, as well as himself, worked at .i trade whiii; 
none could e.xercise without derogating from nobility, it is difficult not to see in 
the arms of which the great Genoese boasted abroad, and in consecjuence vi 
quite exceptional circumstances, a mere concession to the notions of the period 
and to the exigencies of his new position. 

Xo; ChristopluT Columbus was not of patrician origin, and when their 
Catholic Majesties granted him arms with the ()ri\ilege of inserting theroir.

No heraldic motto in the Paris and Genoa Cartularies. 

HE reader was doubtless struck with the omission, in 
the coat of arms which Christopher Cohunhus caused to 
bi: added to these cartularies, of a certain heraldic 
ilevice which accompanies the esciitcheon in all its 
representations e.\ce|)t the present. 

It behoves us therefore to speak of this motto, 
written it is not known when, nor by whom, but con- 
secrated by time antl become inseparable from the name 
of Christopher Columbus and his arms. 
The wonlin^ has come down to us in two or three forins, equally fine. 
The first is thus expressed : ' 

PoK Castiu.a /f roK Leos 
NuEvo ML'sno / Colom. 

That is to say : " For Castile and Leon, Columbus yci^//;/ a new world." 
The other form marks an important modification : 

A Cast! It. A y J Lia m 
A'cKvo Mfxuo i</6 Ci'/.ox. 

Tin' reader will observe that in this case the iiu^tto does not only sa)' that 
Cohinibiis fduii'l a new world for tiie scnereii;ii of Ca->tile and Leon (Isabella), 
bill that ht; j;aie it to her. 

"'•• have searched in vain in tlu! archives of the Spanish Peninsula to 
, ■ source of this fine sentiment.

Ther- is no mention of a motto therein. Lastly, if Columbus owed tin 
devicv the sovereigns, its terms arc too flattering for him not to have niaj, 
use of it. Now, as \vc have just statetl, the motto does not figure in either f,( 
tlie two coats of arms drawn by his order, under his eyes, at Seville, in 1 50; 
and which accompany the cartularies which he sent to the ambassador of Genoa. 
to perpetuate the proof of his rights. 

Neither Peter Martyr, who was quite a man of letters, particularly of the 
Italian type, and whose attention would have been attracted therefore by thij 
ingenious cona-th', nor Las Casas, noi Geraldini, nor Ikrnaldez speak of it 
The first one who mentions the motto is Oviedo, in his I/isloria General dc /„• 
Indias} which he wrote only a coiii)!e of years before 1535. He is the earlic,; 
author who gives it, and in the first form imiicatcd by us, in a heraldic 
description which was not borrowed from authentic documents, but from a coat 
of arms then doubtless current, witiout being nevertheless very exact. 

The second time the motto appears is in the Historic attributed to 
Fernando ColumiKis, written at t'le earliest in 1537, and printed in ij;. 
There it is given in the other form, the one which has prevailed to this day. 

The motto, in the form adopted by the Ilistorie, surrounds the cscui 
cheon sculptured on tiie tombstone of I-'ernando Columbus in the cathedral 
of Seville. As the latter died in 1 539, we have here a rather old wordin;' 
although subsequent by four years to that of Oviedo. Unfortunately, the 
])avement of the cathedral has been repeatedly renewed since that time. \\V 
have frequently and in vain surveyed the lanes which lead to Sierpes, lane- 
paved at tiie beginning of the century (according to tradition) with tlic worn, 
out tombstones of the cathedral. We hojxil to iliscover traces of that of Do: 
I'"ernando. The tombstone which now exists, must, however, be an exact c(i[', 
of the old one, for it corresponds to the ilescription which is to be read ;■ 
I'"ernanclo's will,' but it would be useful to compare it witli " el escudo que del:. 
grabarse en la losa : — the sliield that was to be cut in the pavement," wliich : 
found in the manuscript copy of the will preserved in tiie archives of t: 
chapter of the Seville Cathedral. 

Pedro de Medina, in his Crotiiai «*<• /os Duqucs de Medina Sidonia. 
chronicle dated 1561, and consecjuently anterior by ten years to the publicati 
of the llistorii, says : Los Reyes Catolicos le hicieron grandes mercedes. y ; 
mandaron un escudo de .irnias con un.i Ictra (pie dice : Mundo nucvo c! 
Colon a Castilla y a Leon ; ' — 'lluir Catholic M.ijesties gave him great thank 
and ordered a shield of arms to l)c given to him with a motto say ing ; Columl 
gave a new worKl to Castile and Leon." The word dio instead of //,;,. 
indicates a source in the directimi of the tombstone of Fernando Columbus. 

Finally, the monk Juan de Victoria, who wrote, in Mexico, so late „ 
1574, is reported \.o stati' in his yet unpublished work, De ios Reyes CatSlu.. 
that the device was as follows : 

P^K CAsnri.A y roK Lscw 
jVr/in> Afrx/H) gan(^ Colox. 

or, " For Castile and for Leon, Columbus r.'cw a new world."' 

Strangely enough, however, in the Hi^lorie it is no longer a motto, Lu: .

This is a further concession made June 1 2, 1 .jg;, whereby Columbus's eighth 
J of the profits was to be taken from the gross, anil not as heretofore from the 
i net receipts. 

The decree seems to convey other privileges besides, during three years, 
but i'.s wording is ambigumis. It may mean that Columbus woidd hereafter 
receive the eighth without being obliged to advance a i)ro|)ortion of the cost, —

of 1492 in that respect.' It may also mean that to thu year 1497, Columbus hw! 
not supplied his share of the expense which he had to assume to be entitled 
to the eiKhth, and that, being in debt to the Crown in consequence, Ferdinand 
and Isabella relc^ " iiim from the indebtedness. 

These interpretations, however, are contradicted by the sentence, "nor 
shall you be obliged to contribute anything more than you did for the first 
voyage," as it is now known that he then ^u-nished one eighth of the cost, thr 
money being lent to him by certain Genoese and Florentine merchants settled 
in Andalusia." 

•«• The document has been published by Navarrcte, with the date of June 2." The 
Paris and Genoa codices give " dose ", apparently equivalent to " docc " — 12. It is alsu 
commented upon by Las Casas,* who gives the date " A 2 dias de Junio dc 1497 aftos." 

Document V. Pages 69-70. 

It refers to the appointment of administrators and umpires, May 30, 149- 
chosen by the Crown and by Columbus, to ascertain what should be his parts 
of the gains in the expeditions to the New World, sent and to be sent. 

This is the gist of great difficulties which arose, ami never were entirely 
settled, between their Catholic Majesties and Christopher Columbus. Tlit 
(jucstion requires to be explained. 

By the Capitulations of 1492, Columbus was entitled to three parts of the 
gains. Those parts were unequal. The first part he claimt;il to consist of onv 
tliiril (if the wiiole, by virtue of his office of Admiral of the Indies ; that bcin,; 
the share of the .Admiral of Castile, with whom he had been jilaced on an f(|uai 
footing.' The seconil part consisted of one tenth, as a ri:ward for his scrvitis, 
|)ast, present, and futi"'e. Tlu' third jiart amounted to one eighth, pr( ilicau.l 
uiion his hearing an eighth of the cost of tlu' merchandise I'mbarked for tlir 
purposes of trade and barter. This latti'r |)articipati(>n was altogether o[)tional 
witii Columbus, liut this eighth, as we uiulerstaiul tlu: cl.iuse,— inured to hir 
only when he sujiiilied a CDrresiJomling p.irt of such ex|ienses. 

We iiave seen from l)()Ciiment IV. that originally ail expenses incurred iuiv; 
to lie in it d''ducteil. 15iit the real difticulty lay in the mode of extracting thuy 
three kiiuls of parts from the net proceeds. 

Columbus claimed that th<- third, the tenth, and the eighth should be e.ic;; 
taken from the wliole. witiuuit being matle to aiij diminution in conseciueiiii: 
of tile other two p.irts. I lis re.isoning, which lately been brought to ligh; 
is very clear, and as follows ; 

"A gentleman fts out a shi]), and tells one of his men : ' I appoint )\,. 
ca|)tain, and fur your trouble you shall receive one thiril of the gains after 
dethicting the cost.' I'o aiiotiier, he says : ' You will be the mate, and get o;;-: 
tenth.' To a third, he s.iys : ' You will be the [uirser, with oiu; eighth.' 

" The shij) returns to jiort, bringing (irofits amounting to 1000 crowns, Th'; 
captain then asks for a third of these lotxi crowns, and the gentleman gi^^•^ 
tliem to him. The m.ite cl.iims one tenth of these iixx) crowns, and lu: receive ■ 
it. I'inally, the purser demands one eighth of the 1000 crowns, and he gf,o 
that amount."'* 

.Xcconling to that mode of calculating, Columbus would h.ive been entitle,; 
he and his heirs for ever, to a larger share of lli<- profits even than the Spaiiiv;

Let us see how it worked in respect of '.'ic proceeds of the second 
voyage,— as we suppose ; ' so far as this can be dr le from data in an autograph 
account of Christopher Columbus recently discovered.' 

We will first take as a basis the following weights :^ 

I marc 
1 once 
I ochava 
I tominc 


230,04646 grammes. 
28,75581 - 

3.59447 — 
0,59908 — 

I grano 


0,04992 — 

The total amount of gold, in ingots, or in parcels, sold by Columbus's 
agents, on his own personal account, at Seville, from July to December, 1496, 
and at' Uurgos from January to March, 1497. which we assume to represent 
all the gold accumulated by him-self and for himself, in two years (1494 and 
1495). ^^^* '^ marks, 80 ounces, 57 ochavas, 36 tomines, and 20 grains. 
Consequently : 

12 marcs = 2760,5575200 grammes. 

80 onccs = 2300,4648000 — 

57 ochavas = 204,8851320 — 

36 tomines = 21,5668548 — 

20 grains = 0,9984656 — 

Total 5288,4727724 grammes. 

Now, what does this weight represent in francs ? 

Taking the figure 948 for gold refined, the gramme is worth 3,2587 francs. 
.'' Columbus therefore received fc)r his share 17,228 francs, or about $3,450 = 
^ /708 i8,f. 6(1 in two ye.irs. This sum, however, should be multiplied by ten 
>\ or twelve, to represent its real value at the close of the fifteenth century. As 
*"to the share of Spain, for the same period it would have amounted only to 
,\. 13,628 francs in gold, or .about $2,720* = ^558 iSs. 4<j'. of our time. 
* Unfortunately, the Spanish government adopteil a very different method 

•f for fixing the respective shares of the parties in interest; and as, in the Last 
^ tlirce e.xpeilitions of Columbus, he was accompanied by Crown treasurers and 
J accountants, it had to be enforced. 

In the first place, no notice was ever taken by those functionaries of the 
third which he claimed by vir^"- of his Admiral;.hi[) of the Indies.' 

The tenth, naturally, taken from the whole, after deducting the 
> ^expenses ; then the eighth, out of what was left. 

% C.isas understands* the present document as referring exclusively to 

"ahc administration of the Inilies, which thenceforth to be carried on by the 

j^Crown conjointly with Columbus, through attorneys or agents appointed by 

' Our first impreviion w.-is that those sales of

' The total was about ? 1(1,400 in j;old, of the 
time, for two years. In our opinion it is the 
average yielded after the first voyage of Col. i .vi- 
nes, and until the arrival of Nicolas de Ovando, 
when the mines of Hispaniohi were worked more 
extensively, not only with native Indi.ans, but with 
others, kidnapped fioin all the .idjmning islands.

was devised " tiiat he might receive that part which belongs to him."

This consists of instructions given to Columbus for his third voyage. 
Here, as well as in the original in the archives of the Duke of Veragua, they 
are undated, but correspond to April 23, 1497.' 

A provision to be noted is the one instructing Columbus to coin the goH 
founil in the Indies into pieces like the "excelentes de la Granada."' To tha; 
effect he is to take with him coiners and machiiury. It is to be regretted 
these orders were never obeyed. It is true that under the circumstances hi: 
miglit have taken with him dies engraved in .Spain, and consequently there 
would be dilTerence between 'e.xcelentes' coineil in I lispaniola and 'excelentes 
coinevl in tlie inotlier country. Hut tiure are no tr.iccs of such transatlantic 
money in the documents of the time. Then again, if Columbus had been ablets 
transform his goiil into currency, he would not have sent it in ingots or parcoli 
to Medina del Campo, SLville, .md V.dladolid to be sold to jewellers, as wi; 
know he diil froni his own memoranda. 

We see it stated ' that iu 15:2, b'ernand Cortcz caused gold and silver 
money to be coineil in .Mexico ; but no svich pieces have ever been seen ai", 
wherj. The earliest eviclciice of American coinage is derived from tb: 
ortliiiance of March 11, is.)5.* wIiIlIi ini|)lies that before the latter datr silver 
reals were issiud by a mint established in Mexico; but these pieces even ar-: 
not known to exist in any collection.

This consists of two [i.irts. Tin; first is .1 recital of the jjcneral authoriza- 
tion L'iv*^'> '" ^^'^ subjects of Ouctii Isabella " to and discover other 
islands and mainland in tlu' Inilies," dated Aiiril 10, 1495. The second 
part is a revocation of the .same, dated Jum; 3, 1497, issued at the request of 
CoIin"l'"S' as the first was a violation of his privile^je.s. 

Th(! Articles or Capitulations of April 17, 1492, did not concede to 
Christopher Cohmibus the monuiioly of expeditions to the country which he 
hoped to discover. This j)rivilej,'i: was shared with the Crown. All that 
Coiimibus could claim absolutely was one tenth of th(; tax or royalty impeded 
on vessels intenilin^j to tratle in the m w rej,'i()ns. Hence on the lothof April, 
I40S, l''erdinand and Isabella did nui hesitate to publish a ^I'ueral decree 
autliori/inj,' anyone' to e([uii) ex|)edilinns for the distinct purpose of discovering; 
isles anil contiiunts in the Inilies and Ocean : " descobrir otras islas li tierra- 
lirnie il la parte de las Indias en el mar Oceano," subject, of course, to certain 
prior riL;hts, taxes, and re},nilati<)MS. A numbt;r of sea captains availed them- 
silvis at oMce of the authoii/.ition ; " 1 )iversi naviiuu ductoresad iliversa alterius 
henii'ph.erii littor.i nussi sunt,"' wrote Peter Martyr, on the 1 ith of June, 1495. 

Who those commanders were, where they went, what countries they 
actually discovered or visited, are questions which no one can to-day answer 
with certainty. We only know, bein>,' forbidden to explore the rej^ions

This is the letter which Ferdinand and Isabella addressed to Columbus, 
March 30, 1493, on his return from the first voyage, bidding him come to the 
Court at once to relate his di.scovery of the New World. We possess three 
texts of tliat letter, all dated " De Barcelona a treinta dias cte Marzo de 
iiovcnta y trcs anos." There can be no doubt therefore as to the exactness of 
the (late of March 30th, 1493. It does not follow, however, that their Catholic 
Majesties were not already in jjossession of all the details of that memorable 
expedition. The Fasti Columbini show, by the Journal of Tribaldo d' Amerigo 
(le'Kossi, by tlie Chroi'icle of I'ietro Parenti, by one of Simon Verde's 
letters to Piero Niccoli, and by other contemporaneous aiitliorities, that the 
news of the discovery, borrowed from Columbus's own letter, commenced to 
Lirciilatt! in Northern Italy at a time wher, their Catliolic Majesties had not yet 
been informed of his arrival at Palos ; and that they i<new the leading circum- 
Cohimbus a, B stances of Columbus's voyage twenty-one days before he was invited by the 
above-mentioned letter to come to Darcelona.'

Letter from the Queen individually to Columbus, September 5, 1493, 
sending him a copy of a be.-k which he had left with her, and re(|uesting him to 
M:iui, .xs soon as fmished, the sailing chart which he was to [)repare. Columbus 
received letter, September >S, 1493, in the Puerto de Santa Maria. 

Already, on the 4lh of August preceding, CJueen Isabella had reminded 
Columbus to make and give her that map. Tlie request seems to have been 
l.roini>ted by the fact that the relation of the first voyage which he remitted to 
the (Jueen failed to state the geogra[)hicaI position of the newly-found regions, 
,iiul tlie degrees of longitinle which he traversed to reach those countiies. This 
umission was evidently intentional on the [>art of Columbus, as Is.ibella in her 
reijucst says : " V si vos p.ircciere (pie no la dt'bemos iiKJStrar, nos lo escribid : — 
.\ik1 if it appears to you that we ought not tc show it, write so to us."^

Reply of their C.itholic Majesties, August 16, 1494, to the letters which 
Columbus sent to them by Antonio de Torres. 

This letter implies the fact of a voyage of Torres heretofore unnoticed, and 
which must have taken place, to and fro, bet\c.i April and August, 149^, 
The present letter was conveyed by Torres in the course of a subsequent 
transatlantic expedition, from which he returned to Spain in April, 1495.' 

It is by this letter that Columbus was first informed of the featy oi 
Tordcsillas, and of tlic new line of demarcation established thereby. The renkr 
will notice that their Majesties e.xpress the wish that Columbus will go hini.'icli 
and join the Portuguese mariners appointed to fix the point where theboundarj 
line is to pass. For Columbus's opinion concerning that infringement of his 
rights, see below. Document XXXVI.

This is the .second Papal Hull (of May 4, 1493), preceded here by .tp 
authenticating preamble from the Bishop of Barcelona, and ending with ,1 
certificate of legalization, api)ar(inl>' by the same, which bears the date of Ji;!\ 
19, 1493, with a further .uitlieniication delivered at Seville. Tliurstlay, December 
30, 1501, but erroneously dated 150.3. 

The inii)ortance of this Bull to Columbus is that it establishes a line df 
demarcation from tlie .North to the .South Pole, <v/(- //wwiAvv?' /<v;,,'«o- west .int; 
south of the Azores and Cajie \'<rd islands, thus fixing the transatlantic domain 
of Spain. togeth(.r with Coliiiidius's rights (by imi)lication), west of that lim. 
Portugal being tlis.s.uistitel with only loij leagues, entered into negotiations to liavr 
theapijortionment increased : the outcome of which was the Treaty of Tordesill.i^. 
ol June 7, 1494, in which the new dividing line w,is drawn 370 leagues west <■! 
the Cape \'erd islands. These facts are well known. But historians have failed 
to notice that neither Christopher Columbus nor his heirs ever assented to suci-, 
a great concession on the i)art of l-'erdin.ind and Isabell.i. 

In fact, those 370 leagues corresponded to 28' 13' longitude, of which about 
H/', according to the anonymous Weimar chart, encroached on the Soul!'. 
/\ Continent, thus depriving Cohindnis of the third, tenth, and cighlli 
of the profits which were afterwartls obtained by Portugal from Brazil. 

It is for this reason that when Columbus has occasion to speak of his rights, 
he always ignores not only the Tordesillas Treaty, but at times even the 
Bull of May 4th, and goes so far as to fix a Demarcation Line of his own

invention. I'or instance, in the very ci'ilous legal opinion lately brought to 
liirju by the Duchess of Alba,' which ia r-ntirely in the handwriting of 
Columbus, and commences with the piouii invocation, Jesus cum lilaria sit 
nobis in via, he makes his lawyer say to him : 

" It appears from your privilege and 
agrcciucnt that their Highnesses made yon 
their Admiral of the Occansea, which they 

"I'or vuestro priuilegio y capitu- 
lacinn parcce que S. A. os fizleron su 
ahnirante del mar oqeano, el qual 

fizieron marcar por vna laya que pasa caused to be marked [divided'] by a line 

do las yslas del cabo verde aquelas passing through the islands of Cape Verd 

do los aijores de polo a polo." andthoscof the Azores, from Pole to Pole." 

The reader will notice that no mention is made therein of the 100 leagues 
west of that line, granted by the Bull of May 4th, 1493. 

Hut in the entail which Columbus created on the 22nd of February, 1498, 
lu' i-.ijl.'citly accepts the concession of 100 leagues, as we find the Demarcation 
Line mentioned in these words : 

" And it pleased their f/ighnesses to 
appoint me their Admiral of /he Ocean 
sea, beyond an imaginary line xvhich 
they ordered to be dravn from Pole to 
J\)le, 1 00 leagues from the islands of 
Cape I 'erd and those of the Azores." ^ 

'■ \ i)higo a Sus Altezas de me hacer 
sii Aimirante en el mar Oceano, allende 
lie una raya imaginaria t\ui'. mandaron 
senaiar sobre las islas de Cabo V'ertlc, 
y aquellas de los Azores, cien leguas 
que pasa de I'olo A Polo." 

And as in the will which Columbus executed at Segovia, August 25, i 505,' 
and confirmed almost in articulo mortis, May 19, 1506,' that dcscrijition of tlie 
bine of Demarcation is repeated word for word, it is evident that Columbus 
never assenteil to the concession of the 270 leagues additional made by Spair> 
til Portugal, June 7, 1494.

brouMit to light by the Duchess of Alba," are the only documents cf the kind 
which have been preserved. The loss of the others is not to be regretted, as 
the present are amply sufficient to initiate us into the cause of his complaints 
i.rainst the Spanish Government. 

" The reader will notice that Columbus first claims one third, not only of 
the stains made over the seas, in virtue of his office of Admiral, but over the 
land, and of the land itself, whether insular or continental, discovered or to be 
discovered bi:yond the Ocean, cither by himself or others : the land to be held, 
apparently, .is a sort of fief or feud by him and his heirs for ever. 

Their Catholic Majesties always opposed that leonine interpretation of 
the Capitulations, and it remained during the lifetime of Columbus in the 
sphere of mere discussion. But after his death, this alleged right became tlie 
source of great litigation, initiated, before the Council of the Indies and Fiscal, 
by his son and heir, Diego Columbus. The latter claimed that in consequence 
of the grant, Vicente Yaiicz Pinzon, Diego de Lepc, Rodrigo de Bastidas, 
Alonsode Hojcda, indeed, all the Spanish navigators who discovered the north of Soutli America, from the Gulf of Paria to Yucatan, owed him one third, 
bcsiiii's one tenth of ail the profits arising and lu arise from their discoveries.'^ 

Another e.xorbitant pretension, certainly unjustified, on the part of 
Christopher Columbus, was that one eighth of the profits belonged to him, 
thou"h he should not have furnished a corresponding eighth of the costs. In 
his own words : 

"Jiccausc in the first expedition, from 
-ii'kich resulted the said Indies, that is 
to say the j^ain z<hich arises from them, 
the said y' dmiral eontriouted his eighth 
share, and even about half 0/ the cost ; 
whence he acquired a perpetual title to 
the said eighth, iecause the result o/ the 
said expedition is [lihez-.'ise\ perpetual." 

" Porque en la primera armada do 
(uic resulto las dichas Vndias cs a 
saber la ganan^ia que dellas proijede, 
ta! dicho Almirante contribuyo en su 
ochava parte, y aun cerca de la mitad 
,1c la costa de donde consyguio per- 
pctiu) tytiilo al dicho ochavo por ser el 
rcsiilto de la dicha armada senpyterno. 

Nowhere else do we find that Columbus at any time supplied more than 

Mif <i,'hth (if the cost ; and as to his pL'r[)L'tu,il right under all circumstances to 

lie eighth of the iimfits, it existed only in his imagination. True it is that, 

liine 12, 1497,^ certain additional conct:ssions were made to him in regard to 

that part of the gains, but only for three years.

The letter is undated as to month and day, but, contrary to our first im. 
pression,' it was written by CoKimbus on board the caravel 'which brought 
him in chains, and forwarded immediately upon his landing in Spain, about 
November 20, 1500. It first appeared in print as an Italian translation pub. 
lished by 'he Genoese Academicians in 18 14. They doubtless borrowed tlidr 
text i:i>m v 'le relatively modern extract of the Paris cartulary, as it contains 
a para.;rapli vhich exists only in that Codex.' 

It was published for the first time in the original Spanish in Spotorno's 
Codicc DipU>natico, from the Genoese manuscript,* in 1822. The second tinin 
it apjjcared in that language was in Navarrete's Colcccion, in 1825, from ,i 
copy taken by Munoz, we do not know whence, but revised on Spotorno's text.' 
The letter exists in the manuscript Historia dc las Indias of Las Casas,'

to the Ojfficc of Saint George. Pages 268-275. 

HI'IN Lorenzo Odcrico ]irosc'ntt;il to the Republic tin; 
two cartularies wiiich wc have tlescribed, tiierc were 
pasteil ill one of them two autoj^raph letters of Chris- 
topher Ldliinihus, 

Those two K'tlers are acUlressed to Nicolo Oderi^o ; 
and as the)' refer to the two codices, there is adtled to 
the present puMicatii'ii a facsimile of both, to^'ether 
with an eliicidateil re[)roduction of the text and a 

_ translation. 

Ainrwards, the letter aiklnssed to the Bank of St. George by Columbus 
iMviiiL' been found in the archives of that institution, it was taken out of the 
:,(S, and adiled to the two letters to Oderii^o, in the Cushntia of the 
!:-,;, nicip.dit). 'I'his is rejiroduced likewise here in facsimile, with a printed 
tiNt, and tnmslalion into l'!n};lish. 

The first letter is dated March 21, 1502. Its meanint,', as well as that 
I the other two ei)istles, is too clear to require exiilanalion. The [jersons 
; ,. lUinned only need to be made known. 

Mcolo Dileri^o was ambassador to braiice in i.i<(5 and 1515; to S[)ain 
; \\o\. i50J,aiul I 50O ; anil a member of the tlepiitation sent by the t'leiUK se 
; nuet the Kinj,' of I'r.mce, b'rancis I., at Milan in 1515.' 

I'rancesco Ribarol, or di Rivarola, was a (."n.-noese banker established in 

Seville. We first see his name I'ebruary .). I5ix>, when he was fined i'<v 

I'.iviili,' etiuippc'd and sent a claiule.tine expeditiim to tlu' New World." 

M.ircii H). 1501, Ribarol aj)pearr(l lielore the liscal in Seville, to protest 

,. '.linst lieinj; t.ixeil, on the ple.i thai he was a denoese : " per ra/on de .ser 

iiiivcs." ' We then notice his fii^iirin;^ with countrymen of his amonjj the 

lent [)artners who advanceil Columbus's eii^hth for the fourth vojaye, there- 

I re in the sprin;,' of 1502.' Jul)- 5, 150;,, he is mentioned by Oueen 

Is.iliclLi in connection with the expeilition of Juan de la Cosa to Uraba.'' One 

I the letters of exchani;e which Columlius sent to his son Diego, at the Court, 

ill Ueceinber. iSci^, was furnished by Ribarol.'' 

■■ Micer Juan Lu)s " is doubtless (iian 1-uigi I'ieschi, whom the documents 
f the timi; show to havi' been a personal frientl of t)deriL;o. " Madona Cat.i- 
:;;i.i"is his wi:e, daui;hter of Gian Maria del Caretto. The letter which 
luliunbus sa\s he sent to them is lost.

" Geronlmo dc Santi Estcban " seems to be the Genoese travcllir 
Girolamo da Santo Stefano, the companion of Girolamo Adorno in a noted 
vi/ajjc accomplished between 1496 and 1499.' 

The second letter to Odcrigo is dated from Seville, December 27, ipq, 
The "Franco Catanio" therein mentioned was a Genoese banker in Scviili 
and one of the parties who advanced the eighth for Columbus's fourth voynet 

The other letter, second in point of date, is addressed to the famous Oftic,. 
of St. George, April 2, 1502. With regard to this and the preceding Ictt.r 
we beg leave to refer the reader to our work entitled Christopher Columbu- 
and the Bank of St. George, where their importance is shown in detail.

i 1 V. ornamental headpiece of the present Introduction 
is talcen from tlie admirable hird's-eyc plan of Seville in 
the sixteenth century, drawn on the spot about the year 
' ,S''j Liy tile Antwer[)ian painter George lioifnaj^el, and 
altcrwards enjijraved for i5raun or liruin and I lochenberj.;, 
who inserted it in their well-known Chitatcs oit/is 
lii-raruiii, publishetl at Colo;;ne in 1572.' 

The monumc'ntal arch (26) on the ri^du of the reader 

is the " I'uerta de Goks : — the CJate of Hercules," which 

was I 'lie of the main entrances into Seville. The figure K indicates the street 
"Cille de las Armas." 'I'he buiklintjs (4) extending' on the west side of the

ijitimate son ol Ciiristopiier, whi( h liiat enliiditened bi'>l'";'hile conuuenced to 
huilil in 1526, and where he die'' on the 12th of July, i5;,o. 'I'he famous 
jiiblioteca l''(rnandina (now Coiombina) was apparently locateil in the largest 
of those four structures. If I loefna<;el had been ible to give the details of the 
front, we should doubtless see the while marble iiorlico and architectural orna- 
ments which I'ernando, in the summer of 1529, re(|uested Nicolao ile Cirimaldi 
to iiave scul|itured in Giiio.i, and which, having bet;n partly paid for in advance, 
were diiulitless executeil.' '1 he Iari;e garden adjoining. Libelled "Guerta de 
C"li)i) ; — Columbus' tlrove," was an enclosur<: of about eight linglish acres, 
|i!,iiiti d with 5,cxxj trees, the m.ijority of which came from the New World.' 
.\ll that was left of that princel)' .diodi: in 1S71 consistetl of a single tree, a

As to the edifice on the other siile of the ri\er, bearing the inscription 
" MdMslirio de las Cuevas," it is the Carthusian convent founded in 1400 by 
.\rclil)ishop Cion/,ilo ile Mena, who n.uneil it " Mona,lerio ile Nueslra Senora 
.Sanla Maria de I, is Cuevas: — the Monastery of our l.ady Saint Mary of the

were Jcpositccl in 1 509. Those of his brother Diego, In 1515; of liis 
iwitimate son, of tl\e same naim;, in 1526 ; and of his worthless grandson, Luis, 
alter 1572, were also interred in that chapel.' 

On the ind of June, 1537, Charles the Fifth granted to Dofia Maria dc 
Toledo, widow of Diego, son of the great Genoese, the privilege to have 
the remains of the latter and of liis descendants buried in the chance! of 
the cathedral cliurch of St. Domingo.' Tiiose of Columbus and of his son 
Diego were consequently translerrecl to tiiat city, probably when DoAa Mari.i 
de Toledo returned to Hispaniola, on the 6th of April, 1538, witii the squadron 
of Hernandez de Soto,^ or perhaps later ;* but, at all events, before 1549." 

It was also in that chapel of the Monastery of Las Cuevas that the archives 
of Chn tophcr Columbus ami, until r()09, of his descendants were prescrvcil,'' 
All these facts certainly entitle Hoefnagel's fine sketch to a place in ihe 
present work. 

Las Cuevas still exists, outwardly, as it stood in the days of Christ<)i)hi r 
Columbus, Hut the building is no longer a monastery. ICvcrything inside h.ii 
been destroyed or removed, leaving only naked walls, whiti washed with linic , 
and the chaijcls are now occupied by an Knglish company ^■hich manufactures 
porcelain wares for the Seville market. Not only no vestiges remain uf 
Columbus's grave or tombstone, but there are no local traditions as to its red 
position and appearance. Nay, the people in the neighbourhood do not even 
know that Las Cuevas was during more than thirty years the burial-place nf 
the discoverer of America.
